Laois woman Sara helps bring Purcell Shield glory to IT Carlow

Last night IT Carlow’s camogie team were helped in winning the Purcell Shield over the Garda College by Camross woman Sara Cuddy.

Sara, lining out in the half-back line, helped her college to secure a 1-7 to 1-6 win in the division 2 college camogie championship.

Garda College led by three points after eight minutes on a scoreline of 1-1 to one point.

IT Carlow cut the deficit back to two points before Garda College pushed ahead on the stroke of half-time leading 1-4 to 0-3.

A comeback was needed and it came. A last minute goal from a long range free saw IT Carlow go one point up with 63 minutes on the clock.

After a tense and thrilling end to the game, IT Carlow walked away as Shield victors 1-7 to 1-6.

Sara is in her second year of college in IT Carlow and received a sports scholarship from the college before Christmas.
